There will always be naysayers and critics,these people are heavily out numbered by the dedicated and talented workforce of the yard,now hopefully contracts can be finalised and work can resume,it would be great to think that apprenticeships could be a future thought of the new owners.

Infrastrata completed the purchase of H&W today by paying the administrators £3.3 million.  They can now go ahead and finalise existing contracts.  The 120 employees and their families will now feel more secure and enjoy their Christmas.

Remember the bravery and deeds of the Men & Women of the USC, RUC, RUC Reserve, the UDR, PSNI, but most of all the British Army.

"The Harland and Wolff cranes are decorated for Christmas."

"Just a few weeks ago, it looked like the lights at Harland and Wolff could be going out forever – but now Belfast’s famous cranes have been lit up as a symbol of hope this Christmas."

"Samson and Goliath, as the famous Harland and Wolff cranes are known, started twinkling earlier this week in celebration of the festive season."          etcetera,...

Apparently Harlands have so much work now, they are having to turn work away. Great to see them doing so well.
